Fire kills tropical fish at Neighborhood Fish Farm in Miami-Dade

The Neighborhood Fish Farm in Southwest Miami-Dade sells hundreds of tropical fish species for aquariums imported from around the world. 

Their ponds, aquariums and tanks have dozens of fish including Angelfish, African Cichlids, American Cichlids, Goldfish, Koi, Tetras, Gouramis, Oranda, Barbs, Sharks, Libearers and Guppies.  

On Saturday, Miami-Dade firefighters found a lot of them dead after extinguishing a fire at the popular farm at 12150 SW 45 St

The fire happened hours after the store announced to their followers on Facebook that there were lots of new arrivals.

The farm also has beautiful water lilies in pink, red, white, blue and purple, and drift wood to decorate ponds and aquariums. 

The fire remained under investigation Saturday afternoon.
